Before and after – Sun Ming, pictured earlier this year, and then work crews as they continue to clear the debris of the building Tuesday.
For once, the wrecking balls were welcome! Demolition finally began on the blighted property that is the former Sun Ming Restaurant this week. The 1000 West Jericho Turnpike property was officially added to the blight registry on March 10; architect Edward Dickman is heading up plans to redevelop the property.
